Welcome | The GradGuide 2010 - 2011


Greetings from the Graduate School and welcome to The University of Texas at Austin! I want to extend a warm welcome to you as you embark on your graduate career. This is an exciting time for you, and I encourage you to take advantage of all that UT Austin has to offer as you begin your master's or doctoral degree. I hope that your time here will be both academically productive and personally rewarding. Think creatively and reach for the stars. One of the university’s goals is "to transform lives for the benefit of society," and it does this by providing the environment and resources you need to develop skills and knowledge in your chosen field. As a graduate student, you will have the opportunity to study in greater depth and detail than you did as an undergraduate. You will be challenged to solve problems, explore new areas of study, and go beyond the boundaries of current knowledge to make new discoveries. In addition to working with the finest faculty in the country, you will soon be well acquainted with our first-class libraries, computer facilities, and research labs. But student life is more than just academics. Take a little time to enjoy other parts of this dynamic and sophisticated campus. UT Austin is home to wonderful visual and performing arts, world-class museums, and rare literary treasures. You will also find a rich feast of lectures, symposia, and conferences. And, of course, you can cheer for the Longhorns at sports events or participate in recreational sports yourself at our excellent facilities. Once again, welcome to UT Austin. I wish you every success in your studies and hope to meet you personally in the near future. Best Wishes,

The Graduate School and Your Department > Throughout your graduate studies, you will spend the majority of your time in your home department, which provides the faculty resources and services that are integral to your academic program. The Graduate School provides access to the broader graduate community and valuable support that can enhance your graduate experience and help you successfully complete your program. In addition, the Graduate School administers the rules and regulations of the university that govern the process of degree completion from admission through graduation. Each graduate program interacts with the Graduate School on your behalf through the services of the graduate adviser, the graduate coordinator, and the chair of the Graduate Studies Committee. The Graduate Adviser and Graduate Coordinator oversee the details of your academic program, and the chair of the Graduate Studies Committee acts as the representative of the faculty committee that administers the academic policies of your degree program. Your master’s or doctoral degree is granted by the Graduate School, and you will be hooded at the Graduate School Convocation during commencement weekend. The Graduate School’s Services The Graduate School is committed to providing services and resources to all graduate students to ensure that the graduate education experience is the best it can be.

Financing Your Graduate Education The Graduate School maintains a list of graduate fellow programs for our students. Many of the fellowships are administered through the Graduate School, but we also list fellowships that are awarded to students in a particular field of study. In addition to fellowships, we also administer teaching assistant (TA) and assistant instructor (AI) tuition assistance. The assistance is based on the number of hours the TA/AI appointment is paid on a semester basis. www.utexas.edu/ogs/funding/ www.utexas.edu/ogs/employment/tuition/ Graduate Recruitment and Outreach Graduate education is an investment.

External Relations Building our graduate community is essential to the Graduate School’s overall mission. The External Relations area reaches out to students, alumni and friends through various programs, home and office visits, workshops, an electronic monthly newsletter, and our home page. We seek to connect supporters of graduate education with our programs and services, so that together we can expand our community and support students and faculty across campus.

The Graduate School is committed to providing services and resources to all graduate students to ensure that the graduate education experience is the best it can be.

Use it as a UT library card, to enter recreational sports facilities and to ride the shuttle bus for free. To receive your ID card, you need your driver’s license or a passport and your EID. The ID Center is centrally located at the Information Desk on the first floor of the Flawn Academic Center (FAC).

More Information Technology will play a large role in your time at the university. For additional information and links to all of these services, please visit: www.utexas.edu/its/students

IT on Campus ITS products and services that can be of help include wired and wireless internet access, email, printing services, computer labs and more. If you have technology related questions, you can also call the ITS Help Desk at 512-475-9400. Check with your graduate coordinator about access to restricted-use departmental computer equipment and labs. The university also offers general-use and shared-use computer labs and facilities for all students. University Email Every UT Austin student receives a university email account at no cost, on mail.utexas.edu. Your department or college may also provide you with an email account.

You can check your email using a desktop email program or Web mail, which allows easy access to your account from any internet-connected computer. Discounted Computer Products The Campus Computer Store provides low academic pricing on hardware, software and accessories from top manufacturers. Take advantage of these savings as well as the store’s convenient location on the first floor of the FAC.

SDS is located on the second floor of the FAC. Computer Security and Responsibilities ITS offers BevoWare, a bundle of free software, to help secure your computer. It includes anti-virus and firewall products that will help you meet university information security requirements.

Registration Registration for classes is performed online using ROSE, the registrar's online services.

Learning the longhorn lingo may take a little time, but it’s worth the effort.

Graduate Lingo > A Ad Hoc Interdisciplinary Program Students may propose to construct an ad hoc interdisciplinary doctoral program that draws on the intellectual resources of several graduate programs and involves faculty members from more than one school or college, allowing students who have been admitted to a graduate program to design a course of study that does not fit into an existing degree plan. Adds/Drops Changes in a student's schedule are accomplished by adding or dropping courses. The procedures for adding and dropping courses can be found in the graduate student catalog. Admission with Conditions With the approval of the Dean of Graduate Studies, a program may admit a student who does not meet the Graduate School’s minimum standards for admission. A conditional admission may require the student to maintain a certain grade point average (GPA) or take a certain number of semester hours of coursework or meet other academic criteria in order to continue on in the program. Assistantships Various teaching, research and academic assistantships are awarded by academic departments. The positions are designed for a specific service determined by the department. International students and nonresident students may pay resident tuition and fees if the assistantship is related to the student’s degree program. B Bar This can be a financial (i.e. a library fine) or a non-financial (i.e. advising) restriction that prohibits a student from registering until it has been cleared. BEVO The university's official mascot, a longhorn steer, accompanies the Longhorn football team to all home games and many out-oftown games. Big 12 UT Austin is a part of the southern division of the Big 12 athletic conference with Baylor University, Oklahoma State University, Texas A&M University, Texas Tech University and University of Oklahoma. Schools in the northern division include Kansas State University,

University of Colorado, Iowa State University, University of Kansas, University of Missouri and University of Nebraska. Bursar's Office Also known as the Cashier's Office or Student Accounts Receivable, this is where students may pay their fee bills or pick up student employment checks. C Cancellation If registration is withdrawn, or cancelled, by a student before the first class day of any semester, a full refund of tuition and required fees minus a $15 matriculation fee is issued. A student may initiate a cancellation of registration by contacting the Graduate School. Cashier's Office The Cashier’s Office is also known as the Student Accounts Receivable and the Bursar’s Office, where students may pay their fee bills, clear bars or pick up student employment checks. Confirming Registration Students who have a “zero amount due” reflected on their fee bill due to financial assistance they are receiving must complete, or confirm, their registration via the Web or by submitting their fee bill showing a “zero amount due” to the cashier’s office by 5 p.m. on the day their registration is processed to avoid a cancellation of registration for nonpayment. Course Schedule The course schedule lists the courses to be offered each semester, including time, location, unique number and instructor, as well as other essential registration information and instructions. It is currently available through the registrar’s Web site. registrar.utexas.edu/schedules/ Co-op The University Co-op has several locations in Austin. The main location is at 2246 Guadalupe St., directly across from the West Mall. Partially owned and operated by students, faculty and staff of the university, the Co-op sells UT Austin clothing, textbooks, magazines and has a camera department, as well as a service center for paying bills, shipping packages and more.

Graduate Policies | The GradGuide 2010 - 2011


Selected Graduate Student Policies > We strive to write policies that promote the interest and integrity of graduate education.

Please note this section is not a complete listing of policies pertaining to graduate students, nor does it state the noted policies in their complete format. To review the official policies please refer to The University of Texas 20072009 Graduate Catalog, or visit: registrar.utexas.edu/catalogs/ Leave of Absence: Graduate students may apply for a leave of absence of no more than two semesters. If the student has not yet been admitted to candidacy for the doctoral degree, this request must be approved in advance by the Graduate Adviser. Granting leaves of absence for students not in candidacy is left to the discretion of the Graduate Adviser and Graduate Studies Committee. The only rule is that the decision be made "in the best interests of the academic progress of the student." If the student has been admitted to candidacy for the doctoral degree, the leave of absence must be petitioned to the graduate dean, and only in rare circumstances will it be approved. Grievances: Graduate students have the right to seek redress of any grievance related to academic or nonacademic matters. Every effort should be made to resolve grievances informally between the student and the faculty member involved or with the assistance of the Graduate Adviser, Graduate Studies Committee chair, or Department Chair. If the grievance cannot be resolved informally, students have recourse to the formal grievance procedures. The formal procedures will vary depending on the nature of the grievance. For more information, visit the Graduate School web site. www.utexas.edu/ogs/student_services/ grievances.html

minimum full-time course load. Individual graduate programs may require more. The three-credit hour minimum course load for the summer session may be satisfied in one sixweek term, or in the nine-week or twelveweek terms. Students enrolled in affiliated studies are considered full-time students. 99 Hour Rule: The "99 hour rule" refers to the implementation of Senate Bill 961, passed by the Seventy-fifth Legislature. It is the rule that students at UT Austin with over 99 doctoral hours may be subject to the payment of nonresident tuition. For more information visit www.utexas.edu/ogs/student_services/ academic_policies/99in99.html. Electronic Theses and Dissertations: Graduating doctoral students are required to publish a copy of their dissertation in electronic format. Master's students preparing a thesis or report may elect to submit the thesis or report in electronic format instead of paper format to the Graduate School. Grading System Graduate faculty may use the plus/minus grading system. Faculty are not required to use this system, but many do. Here’s how to calculate the grade point average using the plus/minus system A = 4.00 A- = 3.67

B+= 3.33 B = 3.00 B- = 2.67

C+ = 2.33 C = 2.00 C- = 1.67

D+= 1.33 D = 1.00 D- = 0.67

F = 0.00

The GPA is calculated by dividing the number of hours taken into the number of grade points received. For example, a student who makes an 'A' in ARH 396L and a 'B' in ECO 382L earns 12 grade points for the “A” and nine grade points for the “B”. Adding those points together and dividing by the total number of semester hours (21 points divided by six hours) results in a GPA of 3.5. The cumulative grade point average for a graduate student includes all graduate courses the student has taken in residence, and extension courses of graduate rank taken while enrolled in the Graduate School.

Full-Time Graduate Student Status: Certification of full-time status, when needed, is provided by the Office of the Registrar. The Graduate School recognizes nine semester hours during a long session semester and three hours during a summer session as a
